The Joshua Tree #1!!! Alright! (even though actually I think Achtung Baby is their best work, Joshua is my favorite). Nice to see that The Unforgettable Fire made it in there too, although I think it should've ranked a bit higher. ;)

Yeah #44 is a tad bit too low for UF. It's cool to see that many albums on the list though. :-)

I guess if a radio station of U2 listeners rates 'dave mathew's band' on a par with U2, then I suppose i ought to listen to a few of their songs. I have never, to my knowledge, heard any of their songs, yet. They aren't famous over here in England, yet.

Any recommendations for Dave Mathews Band songs i should chek out in particular?

Ohhh there's so many!! Crash and Under the table and dreaming are both great albums. On Crash I love "So Much to Say" , "Crash into me," "Drive in Drive out."

And check out the album Everyday. I just got really into them within the past year or so. They are also an amazing live band.

Ooh yeah I saw them on the list and was happy :) They are my favorite band (ok they're tied w/U2, hehe). As far as songs go, I'd say...hmm...nope can't do it. :) But "Crash" is a good album to start with. Or Under the Table and Dreaming.

Hmmm me thinks probably the survey was skewed by the enormous "Get out the vote for your favorite irish fab four" thing we do. heheheh

Good job!!!!!

Ohhh, there is so much great Dave Matthews stuff out there.

Ants Marching
Two Step

ohh, there is soo much. My favorite group is DMB. I love U2 but I have an obsession with Dave.

But, when I think about U2, I think War is better than ATYCLB. But, Joshua Tree is best.
